These bears are so wonderfully vintage in style and beautifully handcrafted! The LF crew is touched and humbled by Kevin’s kind comments, and swooning over these bears 🙂
“It’s been a beary good weekend! Two needled felted teddies and one German mohair. Good therapy for a busy week…
I’ve been making mohair bears for about 20 years but just picked up needle felting about 6 months ago and I Love it. I also love having Living Felt and Marie and crew in my hometown.
Love the store, products and Marie’s inspiration.”

What a beautiful sculpture, Erin is onto a truly original idea! This is the 2nd such work we have seen of hers, just lovely!

Cheryl sent us this picture of her VERY FIRST BEAR
using the Living Felt Needle Felting a Bear Kit. Isn’t it precious?
These splendid creatures were needle felted by Abby Killman of Ontario, Canada!
Abby wins a $25 Gift Certificate to Living Felt!
She needle felted them using New Zealand Corriedale African Safari, Pilgrim’s Harvest, Cupcake,
Living Felt MC-1 Cotton White, and Living Felt CW-1 Core Wool.
They all have the best faces and are really well felted! We love that the wire in the bunny’s ears makes them able to move! The ears are adorable too! The monkey has the best face, mischievous. 🙂
Thank you for sharing your adorable creatures with us, Abby!
A few weeks ago in our Felting Friend’s newsletter we shared Lisa Schmidt’s first needle felt emulating a real animal — and it was a truly fabulous squirrel.
Well this little bunny is her latest, and he is stealing hearts and racking up bids on ebay as we type! Lisa shared this on facebook,you can grab a link to her auction there.
Lisa is a wonderful example of an artist who is gaining greater and greater control of the medium. Her felt creations up to this point have been truly adorable bears such as the darling Dancing Felted Bear shown here.
As an artist, she has now expanded and is using the skills she has learned and techniques she has discovered to head into new territory for herself, and her outcomes are truly beautiful!
We love this needle felted bear by Kiersten Marie…this is her very first bear and was made with the Living Felt Needle Felting a Bear Kit. Now that she has some basic skills learned….we can only wait to see what she will felt up next!
“Hi! I wanted to send in my photo of the bear I made with the “Needle Felting Bear with String Joints” kit. I was very pleased with him as my first attempt at needle felting. I have since made a few more of my own creations.
Thanks so much for helping me to begin my needle felting hobby!”
Sincerely, Kiersten Marie
